Our divisions should never be discussed except in the presence of those who have already come to believe that there is one God and that Jesus Christ is His only Son.

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity 

In the preface of his collected broadcast talks on the BBC, Lewis sets forth his intentions for writing the addresses. In one lengthy paragraph in which he addresses church denominations he makes a statement that is as relevant now as it was then. In an age when the blogosphere rages with theological disputes by amateurs and professionals alike, flinging their disputes around for everyone to see. From the sounds of it, Lewis would have found this most disturbing. 

Timothy Willard is the author of three books, including Longing For More: Daily Reflections on Finding God in the Rhythms of Life. He has collaborated on over 20 books and has written, consulted and served as spiritual director for organizations such as Chick-fil-A, Catalyst, Q Ideas and Praxis Labs. He lived in Oxford, England for two years studying beauty in the works of C.S. Lewis. He earned his PhD in Theology under the supervision of world-renowned theologian Alister McGrath. When he’s not riding the trails in the Appalachian mountains you can find him by the fire with his three daughters and his wife making up stories about Tom the back yard badger. He lives somewhere in the south Charlotte woods.
